Clinton Takes Over
Program Number


Series Description

FRONTLINE is investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world. Since 1983, FRONTLINE has served as PBS's flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience.

Program Description

After the campaign rhetoric subsides, a new president has only eleven weeks to establish the form and substance of his administration. In this program, FRONTLINE has gained unprecedented access to the behind-the-scenes maneuvering that is creating the Clinton presidency. On the eve of the inauguration, correspondent Hodding Carter offers the first inside view of the new administration as it tackles the critical choices of the people and policies that will form the new American government.
